Research at Kemicentrum
World-class research in a creative, innovative and cross-border environment. At Kemicentrum researchers from a variety of research fields and specializations within chemistry gathers to understand, explain, and improve our world.
Cross-border research and innovation
Some of our key research areas are food and pharmaceuticals, renewable resources, water and wastewater engineering, materials, environment and energy. The research at Kemicentrum ranges from very basic to applied research. With the cross-border cooperation between different research groups, departments and faculties, and not the least with the industry, Kemicentrum not only contributes to high-quality research and education, but often also to innovations and applications that benefit society.
Kemicentrum's location in the heart of the exciting and research intense Öresund region, close to several major research and business parks and industries such as MAX IV and the future research facilitie ESS just minutes away, provides obvious optimal conditions for development, cooperation and innovation.
Research at Kemicentrum takes place in many different formations and research groups at our two departments. You find a brief summary of each departments research here bellow.
Department of Chemistry
Research for the benifit of a sustainable society. That is our goal and can easily summarize the great width of research at the Department of Chemistry in Lund. The Department of Chemistry conducts both basic and applied research. Strong focus areas are environmental, renewable resources and health.
Department of Process and Life Science Engineering
The department's research covers many different areas that together form a holistic approach to promote technological progress while taking into account the environment, human health and the needs of society. By focusing on processes, products, people and the environment, we endeavour to create a positive impact at multiple levels.
Our goal is sustainable and innovative research that meets current and future challenges.
The Department of Process and Life Science Engineering was formed in January 2024 after a merger of the Department of Chemical Engineering and the Department of Food Technology, Engineering and Nutrition.
